Jalapeno-cheddar sausages go with... WHAT, exactly? Help me figure out dinner tonight, please!

In my ongoing quest to cut both my grocery bill and start cleaning out my perpetually-overstuffed freezer, I have 4 thawed jalapeno-cheddar sausages to make into dinner for two tonight. Eating just sausage and nothing else for dinner seems a little sad--plus it won't satisfy my dinner partner, who is training for a marathon and has an appetite like a horse.
So, what sort of side(s) should I add to my sausages to feel more like a real meal? Or is there something I could add the sausages into? Usually, we grill sausages in the cast iron and put over a Spanish-style lentil salad, but that seems like a weird flavor combination with jalapenos and cheddar. I am totally stumped about how to fill this out into a real meal.
I'm trying to minimize my intake of starches so vegetable-based side recommendations are particularly appreciated. Thanks!
